I'm looking for people with a "green thumb", ideal "permaculture-knowledge" for gardening and/or handycraft abilities. There's always something to repair in or at the house, fruit- and nut-trees have to be cutted correctly, or finding the right places for baby-plants, regular weeding and daily watering. If you are willing to help out about ten to fifteen hours/week, you can stay for free in a tent with matress, bedsheets and electrical light, use bathrooms and kitchen-utilities in the house and WLAN or the common PC in the living-room. Because we have three lovely cats, dogs have to stay out.
Our 80 years old 8-room-finca-villa is situated in the center of the ancient part of La Orotava, three minutes to go shopping, 10min walk to the busstation, 10 min. drive to the beautiful beaches of Puerto de La Cruz, 20 minutes by bus to visit the University of La Laguna, but since one year La Orotava got 's got its own European University.
La Orotava is an ideal starting-point for mountain-bikers, hiking- and climbing-tours, because the well known 'Canadas de Teide' are only 12 KM away and the cable-car to the famous Mount Teide you can reach by car or bus in less then one hour, because it's only 36 KM from La Orotava.
La Orotava is famous for its beautiful traditional houses (casa balcones), museums, Canarian food, farmers-market, folk-music and its many fiestas (flower-carpets) during the year.
We live here in a kind of "shared house" with often changing international backpacker-guests and sometimes deep philosopical/spiritual discussions. It's also a quiet/relaxing place for Yoga or Meditation.
